BUZZ is a club of homebrewing enthusiasts (from beginner to advanced) and open to anyone. Come to a meeting and join the email list (instructions below) to learn more. Starting in 2015, we instituted a formal membership. There is no intent to exclude anyone from participating, but those who formally join will get some extra perks, exclusive events, and swag!
To be an official member of BUZZ, you will need to join our Stainless Membership program. If you are not ready to join yet, everyone is welcome to participate in our meetings, events, and email list as a guest. To join our email list, see the instructions at the bottom of this page. Please note that we do have a $5/meeting guest dues to offset the facility cost.
This shift is largely due to the decision that we will be purchasing insurance through the AHA that will cover the liability issues dealing with club leaders, event hosts, and event sites. As part of the insurance we are required to provide a good faith membership enrollment for the insurance package. The best way we can do this is to have a formal membership program. Anyone who participates in events, including monthly meetings, who are NOT Stainless members will be considered club guests (the more the merrier!).
We strongly encourage regularly participating members of our club (anyone who attends at least half of the meetings and participates in and/or attends at least one extra event on average each year) to become a Stainless Member!
